Parents at St Mary’s
Parents are members of the St Mary’s community just as much as the girls and staff. They often come to Mass on Sundays, and might then take their daughters out for lunch. They are also welcome at certain evening events, including our wonderful Inspirational Women series of talks. Parents are warmly invited to all of our many drama productions and concerts, including the bi-weekly lunchtime concerts in the chapel. Major events such as the Carol Service, the Dance Show, the Gymnastics Gala, Open Day and Sports Day are big family celebrations, attended by many parents and siblings. On a more informal level, parents regularly pop in to see their children on a weekend, or take them out for tea.
We hold a Parents Day of Prayer every term, and the History of Art Department leads guided art trips for parents to London, as well as to European cities. Parents can keep in touch with the school and all its events through the parent portal.
